Tune the speed of the Fly tool in ArcScene


The Fly tool is used in ArcScene to fly through a scene. The speed is relative and goes from negative numbers (backward) to positive numbers (forward). Sometimes these speeds need further tuning.


Start ArcScene with a surface visible.

  1. Click the Fly tool.
  2. Single-click the left mouse button. This is speed 1.
  3. While flying, use the up arrow key to increase speed 1. Use the down arrow key to decrease speed 1. Speed 1 will be recalibrated.
